Bishop Grosseteste nominated for two design awards

Winning formula: The revamped prospectus for Bishop Grosseteste University is already up for two educational design awards.

Bishop Grosseteste University has been put up for two national awards, thanks to its new prospectus design.

The prospectus, made in-house by BGU’s marketing team, is up for Best Undergraduate Prospectus and Best Prospectus from a Specialist Institution at the HEIST Awards.

The HEIST Awards celebrate innovation and excellence in education marketing.

The design is based of student feedback to give the book a more personal feel, and was completely re-written, researched and designed.

It also includes stories and quotes from students about the different courses plus the elements of living, studying and socialising in Lincoln

The BGU team has included quotes and stories from current students about the courses, activities and social aspects of studying and living in Lincoln.

Ben Rook, Marketing Manager at BGU, said: “BGU is a unique university and has such a strong community spirit.

“We worked very hard to make sure that the prospectus captured as much of this spirit as possible to show potential students what a great place it really is.”

“We’re aware that prospective students want to see a university’s credentials not only from the perspective of the institution itself, but also from the students who attend it.

“I’m delighted with the outcome and the national recognition we’ve received.”

The university will be up against the University of Nottingham, the University of Cambridge and the University of Leicester.
